Stone design has become increasingly popular among individuals in Utah looking to make updates to the interior of their homes. There’s a very good reason for stone’s rise in popularity. It provides versatility and durability that delivers beautiful, long-lasting results without busting your budget. While stone countertops have traditionally been the most common application for stone, the versatility of this material makes it ideally suited to many other innovative interior design projects.

You can use stone in a variety of applications to achieve stunning aesthetics that will enhance both the value of your home and your daily enjoyment of it. When you visit our Salt Lake City showroom, our team of expert surface specialists can discuss a wide range of ideas with you to get your creative juices flowing.

Stone showers deliver an exotic and luxurious feel that will continue to look great for years to come.

You can choose from a wide range of stones. For a more classic look, you may want to consider marble. You can also opt for exotic granites and travertines that will provide a dramatic appearance. Every stone slab possesses unique patterns, textures and colors, giving your shower a truly one-of-a-kind feel.

Stone showers are not only elegant and beautiful, but they’re also highly functional. Stone is naturally resistant to water and staining, making it a great option for high moisture environments such as a shower. Minimal maintenance is required, and the durability of stone ensures your shower will look great for many years. If you’d like to elevate your bathing experience and feel like you’re in a luxurious spa, stone showers are an excellent choice.
